The NFL trading deadline may have come and gone with a whimper, but action remains fast and furious in fantasy leagues everywhere. So NFL Fantasy LIVE decided to ask America what players it would be willing to deal for. And we could just tell you the results, but what’s the fun in that? Instead … we’re playing the feud!

The first question was “Who would you trade for Andy Dalton?” Turns out the most popular answer was Tom Brady — something that would have been unthinkable as recently as September. However, the Red Rocket has been hot in recent weeks while Brady has […]

The highly anticipated on-campus workout of USC quarterback Matt Barkley finally took place on Wednesday.
The school that boasts 1938 Heisman Trophy winner Davey O’Brien, future Pro Football Hall of Famer LaDainian Tomlinson and the incomparable Sammy Baugh as its most notable football alumni has returned to prominence under coach Gary Patterson.
Will Cincinnati Bengals wideout A.J. Green rebound after his sub-par performance last week?
After Ray Rice dubbed his now infamous 4th-and-29-play “Hey Diddle Diddle Ray Rice Up The Middle,” we thought it’d be fun to parody some other iconic nursery rhymes to tell the best stories of Week 12. Check out the list below:

You’ve heard this before, but this is why you always play your studs. Calvin Johnson has led the world this season in being tackled at the 1-yard line. No, seriously. Elias passed along this note before the start of NFL Fantasy Live on Sunday which said Megatron had been tackled at the 1-yard line after four of his catches. And each time, the Lions ran the ball in each time, and did not go to Johnson.
Andy Dalton says he takes more of an active role in practice in his second season.
For Bengals coach Marvin Lewis, one year removed from an NFL lockout that froze offseason activities, there’s nothing more valuable than a little face time with his young QB, Andy Dalton.

As suspected, Calvin Johnson’s absence from practice Wednesday was nothing out of the ordinary. Fantasy owners should feel confident giving him a start.
When Cam Newton was taken No. 1 overall in April, all eyes were focused on him. Analysts wanted to know whether he was just a one-year wonder at Auburn, a product of a spread system, an athlete with only a slight grasp of the passing game. Throughout the 2011 season, with every “Superman” celebration, after 26 touchdowns, he has proven those questions to be mute.
